Weight-Loss Apocalypse: Emotional Eating Rehab Through the Hcg Protocol by Robin Phipps Woodall

Weight-Loss Apocalypse:
Emotional Eating Rehab Through the Hcg Protocol
by Robin Phipps Woodall
(Kindle Edition)

Synopsis taken from Goodreads: This book was written to start a new conversation about how Dr. Simeons' protocol has relevance, not only as a hormonal therapy, but as a means to end our national eating disorder. Instead of continuing to apply the protocol as a short-term diet, it shoulder be discussed as a real solution --a tool to end irrational eating for emotional fulfillment. This country is dealing with a crisis: an addiction to eating emotionally, and the obvious result is the overwhelming increase in obesity. Think about the number of people in our culture who eat without hunger. When you observe our nation's behavior with food, it's very clear that fat isn't what we should be obsessed about, and weight shouldn't be the target of the problem. We need a genuine desire to eat less, one that isn't dependent on weight loss as a reward. This requires each of us to be accountable for our own emotions, and find happiness in life not centrally stimulated by food.

My thoughts: This book is helpful for anyone considering using the hCG protocol. It's also helpful for anyone who wants to get control of their emotional or dysfunctional eating which is causing their weight gain. I would definitely recommend first reading "Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity" by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons (1967) before reading anything else if you're doing the hCG protocol.

I've completed four rounds of the hCG protocol (using homeopathic hCG) before this book was available. I went from 190 lbs to 130 lbs and I've been able to maintain my weight between 130-135 lbs for the past eight months. It hasn't been easy, I was and still am an emotional eater, at least now I'm very mindful of what I'm eating and when I eat. Also, keeping a daily food log has helped me tremendously along with exercise.

I would recommend this book to those that have struggled with their weight or for those considering the hCG protocol.
